How does your service stand out?

I am an artist and this quality shows in my work. When ever possible I will service your party personally and if I am booked I will offer another experienced artist.This is not just simple cheek painting, we offer colorful custom designs to fit your event theme. To make your party even more fantastic we offer balloon twisting to add to the fun. We don't stop there, Fortune telling is another option to keep the party interesting. My helpers and I are always professional and entertaining.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I have the most awesome job! When I go to work it's always a party! The kids have a blast, they get so excited. The adults love to join the fun too. I have painted many many adults, and it is so much fun watching them be a kid again.

    Highly recommend Karen, she is incredible!
    Karen was amazing! She made all of the kids feel very comfortable and was super accommodating when it came to letting the kids pick their designs. She is incredibly talented and I would highly recommend her!

    Karen was a hit at my 30th birthday bash! Everyone loved getting their face painted (very detailed designs!) or having their palms read. I'd recommend her to everyone!

    The Lonsdale Chamber of Commerce has hired Karen to work at our annual Lonsdale Community Days for the past two years. Karen is a talented artist, her designs are extremely detailed and more advanced than your average face painter. She is prompt, friendly, artistic, professional and certainly made a lot of children happy during our festival. Her rates are reasonable and would highly recommend her services. We look forward to having Face Painting by Karen return next year.

    Hi Joyce My apologies for lasts nights no show. On my way to your event I was involved in a car accident and was pretty shook up. In my nine years of face painting I have never had a no show, that's not how I do business. I realize the children were looking forward to face painting, of course they were disappointed. I'm sorry I was unable to make it. Karen

    I hired Karen for a Macy's cosmetic event to entertain the kids as their mothers received makeovers. Karen was professional, punctual, flexible to our needs, and perfectly adjusted her timing with our customers based on the traffic at our event. My team has expressed wanting to hire "only Karen" again for future events.

    My daughter used Karen for our grand daughter's birthday party, and I was so impressed with Karen and her talent, that I hired her to do our competition dance team banquet. She is amazingly talented and just really a great person. She was interacting with all our dancers and their parents and all the kids were so thrilled with their face paintings! I believe she even booked a few more parties off of this one. I would highly recommend her! She is very reasonably priced and I know that you will be extremely happy with her! -Robin Lind Owner of Dance Tech Studios

    We hired Karen for my daughter's seventh birthday. The girls loved being able to select their art from books Karen brought. Some girls even designed their own. They loved the bright, colorful, glitter-accented designs she painted - flowers, animals, "jewelry" and more! Karen is a wonderful artist. I would definitely hire her again.

    We hired Karen for my daughter's third birthday party. She flawlessly handled 24 kids under 4 and did amazing work! The party was butterfly themed and she did amazing full face butterfly designs on each kid that even matched their clothes! The face painting was the highlight of the party! Thank you Karen!

    We had a school-wide Winter Party and Karen (and the team she brought with her) were AMAZING!!! They did wonderful designs and got the kids through the line quickly. All of the families loved having them there and I have already been asked to have them come back next year. Thank you for a wonderful addition to our party!

    Karen recently squeezed us in for a preschool age B-day party. She was very professional, accommodating, and incredibly talented! She was able to customize each child's requests and the adults had so much fun watching her they too had to join in.
